Welcome to Folkestone and Hythe in 2010, where we have elected a Tory MP who thinks he'd be a Republican if he lived in the USA.
I can't decide what's more concerning: his ignorance that the Tory party is probably more left wing than the Democrats, or his ignorance of what the Republicans actually stand for.
If he really is a Conservative because he wants to be "free", then his support of a brutally socially conservative American party seems completely bizarre. Let's see some Republican fun:

I think those are the questions we in Shepway need to start asking.
